How can I quit after working just a week?
This holiday season I applied to a few retail jobs because I quit my food service job (bad hours) I received an acceptance from two of the three companies. I decided to go through training for each to see which one I liked best and which one had the best benefits. After working on the floor at both jobs I have made my decision. How can I properly decline the other retail job. See, both places gave me a schedule starting next week and I want to be polite about it. Thanks in advance

It sounds like polite went out the window long ago with u.nothing personal but u might as well drop ur slacks and take a dump on your managers desk and tell them to F off.at least they would get a laugh out of it after u left.

Seeing this I had to add my two cents also. You already accepted both jobs by going to the training without ever intending to keep both. You have cost the companies money in their time and effort. There is nothing polite about this. It doesn't matter what you tell them.
